Gunung Tahan

Article From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gunung Tahan
Elevation 2,187 m (7,175 ft)
Location Pahang, Taman Negara National Park
Range Tahan Range

Mount Tahan
, at 2,187 m, is the highest point in Peninsular Malaysia. It is located within the Taman Negara national forest, in the state of Pahang. The mountain is part of the Tahan Range and popular to local climbers.

In Malay language, "gunung" means "mountain" and "tahan" means "endure". Thus the name of the mountain suggests that a certain level of physical endurance is required to conquer the mountain. Gunung Tahan is considered by many as the toughest trek in Southeast Asia.


All climbers can reach the peak from the most popular trails - the Kuala Tahan classic trail. This return trail typically takes seven days. Climbers have to trek across undulating ridges, cross several rivers before finally reaching the foot of the mountain to make the final ascent.

Climbers without adequate physical fitness or training are not advised to attempt Gunung Tahan.

The other two trails are Merapoh (Sungai Relau) and via Kelantan. An average climber on these trails would take five days.
